Tooth Pain Relief
When you have oral pain, it can disrupt your life and make it difficult to concentrate on anything else. Toothaches, jaw pain and other oral issues are present every time you speak, eat or drink. At Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we never want our patients to suffer in pain when we have so many options to stop and eliminate tooth and jaw pain. We can offer relief and help improve your oral health with general dentistry.
The simple rule of thumb is that if your tooth hurts, it needs some type of treatment. The nerves of the tooth are deep inside, and if they are sending pain signals to the brain, there is a problem with the tooth. It may be decay, damage to the structure or infection. Whatever the issue, our dental experts can find it and offer a solution to stop the pain and protect your oral health. Our team can repair damaged teeth, fill cavities, perform root canals and many other dental treatments to stop tooth pain.
Treatment for Jaw Pain
When you have pain in the jaw, it can be a form of temporomandibular joint disorder (known as TMJ or TMD) or some other problem. There are many different factors that affect the jaw, including bite alignment, teeth grinding, clenching, dental issues and chewing. Often jaw pain can be relieved by fixing a dental problem – an unlevel tooth or orthodontic issue can be the source of discomfort to the jaw. For some of our patients, wearing a nightguard to adjust their jaw and protect their teeth at night can give relief.
If you have tooth or jaw pain, stop suffering and call our friendly team at Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. We offer fast, effective treatments to stop all types of oral pain, with sedation dentistry available if needed during treatment. Contact our office today to schedule your exam.
